When German Chancellor Angela Merkel wants to impress international visitors, her go to wines are Bender. A one man winery along the Mosel, Bender Wines produce some of the most approachable German wines available in Alberta.
Andreas Bender developed an interest in wine at the early age of 13 while watching his father and learning best practices to farming, producing and aging great wines. His two decades of winemaking experience and skill has produced some of the best wines Germany has to offer on the international market.
Andreas dropped by Jasper Wine MRKT this past week to showcase his wines and to see how Bender wines are doing in Edmonton's marketplace. We were impressed by his easy going nature and excited to tell him his wines were among some of the best sellers here at the store.
He uses grapes from vineyards in the Pfalz and Ruwer regions of Germany in addition to vineyards on the Mosel - some of the steepest in the world. Dangerous inclines that are not for your average vintner.
Jasper Wine MRKT currently stocks several Bender wines that retail for less than $25.00, offering exceptional quality for their humble price. Choices are Bender Pinot Noir, Der Rosé, Weißburgunder (Pinot Blanc), Paulessen Reisling and both the Kulina Reisling and Gewurtztraminer, and his traditional style Dajoar Riesling Zenit at $37.50.
Come to Jasper Wine MRKT and explore the unconventional wines that Andreas Bender has to offer.
